CURIE Academy, July 2020 – For the second year in a row, Professor El-Ghazaly taught the ECE Field lecture in the summer CURIE academy for high school students interested in engineering. Due to limitations imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the young women attended the week-long program virtually. Via Zoom, they learned about the different types of engineering and did more in-depth activities related to the field of Operations Research and Information Engineering.
